I received a fundraising email from the International Solidarity Movement, and they apparently are in pretty bad shape.
Their heyday was when they fooled Rachel Corrie into thinking that she would stop a bulldozer that couldn’t see her.
Now they say that the need $29,000 to cover their budget for 2018, for office expenses and to bring some Palestinian propagandists to college campuses.. Last year in total they only raised $10,000.
An addendum to today’s email, possibly not meant for the entire group, says:
The US donations have been very weak so far, although it’s a bit early to count the responses by check, of which we have so far received none. Not sure about responses to the Swedish site.
The top headline on their website brags that they are “surviving.”
The ISM is a bellwether for extremist anti-Israel organizations like Free Gaza and others. Chances are, they are all hurting.
They need dead activists to galvanize their base. Those evil Israelis aren’t even giving that to them.
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
